Chair DeFazio Statement on President Biden Signing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into Law


WASHINGTON, DC— Today, Chair of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Peter DeFazio (D-OR) issued the following statement after President Biden signed the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law:

“Today, President Biden is making history by signing into law the largest investment in America’s infrastructure in a generation. This historic law will help address the climate crisis, create good-paying jobs, and boost American competitiveness by upgrading our roads, bridges, rail, transit, drinking water, and wastewater infrastructure. I’m proud of the role the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee played in setting a high bar for this legislation. I look forward to working with the Biden administration as we began to implement this law and get these much-needed funds out the door as quickly as possible because communities can’t afford to wait.”
